The Parable of the Spider Webs and Raindrops

It rained last night and I’m watching raindrops fall from the trees as the wind blows. Spider web strands glisten in the morning light. I would think raindrops are heavier than spider web strands and would break them, but apparently not. Come to think of it, I’ve seen pictures of raindrops caught in spider webs.

Life is like a spider web strand – thin and tenuous. Just as raindrops don’t break spider webs, but add to their beauty and wonder, so too teardrops don’t break our lives, but add to our beauty and wonder. The spider web strand is deceptively strong – and so are we.
